Joan Brausch applauds legislative abandonment in Wisconsin while a spokesman for occupy, THEN denies she was a spokesman.
Joan Brausch should be a NASCAR driver.
The Democrat candidate for Michigan’s 98th house seat would have voters believe she wasn’t a spokesman for the ‘occupy’ movement. Apparently she has been running the left turn at high velocity for so long, that the centrifugal force has drawn all the blood from the left hemisphere of her brain.
A Facebook posting denying involvement as leadership in the occupy contradicts with video evidence.
Of course, the “American Dream” group she founded might well be true also.
Considering who ALSO organized an ‘American Dream Movement’ on or about the same time, its very possible she was a part of that.
“In 2011, Jones worked with MoveOn.org to launch the Rebuild the Dream campaign, which was intended to start a progressive American Dream movement “
I suppose linking to communists while denying her local ‘occupy’ suckers sends a signal she is willing to toss aside a few nobodies to advance a hardened ‘progressive’ agenda.
Even as she is afraid to debate and suffer an inevitable crush through unassailable logic and common sense by Republican Gary Glenn.
That turnbuckle thing in Joan's eyebrow is going in the wrong direction - it should run horizontal - Progressivism is a mental disorder.
Speaking of NASCAR, I see that the France family was successful in extorting another multimillion dollar contract as if they'd quit racing in August without taxpayer subsidy.
Memo to the Nerd's Ann Arbor SPARK crony, the MEDC's HNIC: if there is a $4 ROI, then why the f**k are you not handing the France family the whole $29M Pure Cronyism budget? "beds and butts" = Pure bullshit.
Oh well, at least JenniRick Snydholm's "never publicly opposed the governor" toad will have something to fap to on Sundays.
Yes, it was amazing how much the stands at MIS filled up after people began seeing the "Pure Michigan" sign out front.
Why before the state got involved in sponsoring races there, the place looked like a regular ghost town...
No need for speculation on the Brausch connection to Van Jones and his Rebuild the American Dream group.
The Midland Daily News reported in 2011: "Joan Brausch of Midland started the Midland chapter of the Rebuild the Dream movement." http://www.ourmidland.com/news/article_b8566744-17f0-5c4c-8bac-ea58c08db46c.html?photo=1
And MDN reported in 2012: "It was at a Netroots convention in her hometown of Minneapolis that the seed to run for office germinated. ...Brausch met Van Jones, an American environmental advocate, civil rights activist, and attorney. Jones, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, was in the process of starting his Build a Dream movement. 'Van challenged all of us to go back home to gather friends, neighbors and those who are not your friends, and talk about priorities. I came home and did just that, which led to me running,' she said."
For insight into who and what inspired Brausch's runs for political office, it's fair to ask: Who is Van Jones?
Jones served as the Obama Administration's "green jobs" czar before being forced in 2009 to resign after revelations that he'd founded an openly socialist organization in San Francisco and had signed a petition that, according to the Washington Post, questioned whether President George W. Bush "may have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war." http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/09/06/van_jones_resigns.html
In a 2005 interview, Jones used these words to describe himself and his ideology: "revolutionary"..."communist"..."radical"...
"In jail, (Jones) said, 'I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of. ...I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.' ...'By August, I was a communist.'
In 1994, (Jones and other) young activists formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. ...Not only did the left need to be more unified, (Jones) decided, it might also benefit from a fundamental shift in tactics. ...'I'm willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends.'"

Brausch's campaign is being funded, literally, by maxed-out $1,000 contributions from Broadway and Hollywood movie producers and other high-profile "gay" activists across the country after her campaign was featured in a nationwide conference call by homosexual multi-millionaire Tim Gill of Denver.
